The right partner for your next project

christina zigouras building designer

Raised in a family business environment, accounting and finance was taught to me as the backbone of running any business, no matter what it was.

I came to building design after a career in finance and business management. Graduating with a Bachelor of Business from David Syme, Monash University and after a period of travel, I worked for the family manufacturing business that supplies the construction industry. I became more and more interested in the built environment and the satisfaction of seeing form come out of the ground.

I returned to study and in 2006, graduated in the Construction Design & Technology at RMIT in Melbourne with distinctions. Keen to establish my own practice I worked hard to gain industry experience. I became a registered building practitioner in 2008.

Experience

Our industry is constantly changing and sometimes it is a challenge to keep up with it.

Being a member of the BDAV (Building Design Association of Victoria) is a way of keeping sure that I am up to date with industry changes. As a registered building practitioner, I am also informed of updates to the National Construction Code on a regular basis via Victorian Building Authority seminars and newsletters.

Of course trade shows are always a fun way to keep up to date with the latest building technology and materials on offer.

Philosophy

I’d take wisdom over youth anyday.

I can never quite understand why there is age discrimination in our workforce. The humility, understanding and experience you gain with age in all aspects of your life are valuable commodities to understanding others.

Integrity has become the most attractive personal quality that I look for in others and consequently a trait that I value of myself. Put simply having integrity is following through on what you promise to deliver. What I say, I do. Very simple.

And I like to get involved…. I like to advocate for fairness.

“I have worked with Christina on a number of projects and each time she has shown a remarkable ability to both meet and exceed the client’s requirements by producing a design that, without exception, has more than fulfilled the clients’ expectations. I look forward to working with Christina again soon.”
